Summary

For freshman/sophomore, 2 semester/2-3 quarter courses covering finite mathematics and calculus for students in business, economics, social sciences, or life sciences departments.This accessible text is designed to help students help themselves excel in the course. The content is organized into three parts: (1) A Library of Elementary Functions (Chapters 1 2), (2) Finite Mathematics (Chapters 3 9), and (3) Calculus (Chapters 10 15). The book's overall approach, refined by the authors' experience with large sections of college freshmen, addresses the challenges of teaching and learning when your students' prerequisite knowledge varies greatly. Student-friendly features such as Matched Problems, Explore & Discuss questions, and Conceptual Insights, together with the motivating and ample applications, make this text a popular choice for today's students and instructors. The MyMathLab course for the text features thousands of homework exercises plus instructional videos for nearly every example in the book.

Author Bio

Raymond A. Barnett, a native of California, received his B.A. in mathematical statistics from the University of California at Berkeley and his M.A. in mathematics from the University of Southern California. He has been a member of the Merritt College Mathematics Department, and was chairman of the department for four years. Raymond Barnett has authored or co-authored eighteen textbooks in mathematics, most of which are still in use. In addition to international English editions, a number of books have been translated into Spanish. Co-authors include Michael Ziegler, Marquette University; Thomas Kearns, Northern University; Charles Burke, City College of San Francisco; John Fuji, Merritt College; and Karl Byleen, Marquette University.

Michael R. Ziegler (late) received his B.S. from Shippensburg State College and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Delaware. After completing post doctoral work at the University of Kentucky, he was appointed to the faculty of Marquette University where he held the rank of Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science. Dr. Ziegler published over a dozen research articles in complex analysis and co-authored eleven undergraduate mathematics textbooks with Raymond A. Barnett, and more recently, Karl E. Byleen.

Karl E. Byleen received his B.S., M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from the University of Nebraska. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science of Marquette University. He has published a dozen research articles on the algebraic theory of semigroups.
